yet another silly silly question from your pal jason

So heres a question that might be absolutely ridiculous!

I'm going to flush my transmission fluid this weekend and and get some Redline MT-90 to put in there. I have a manual, 1999 with the I6. My owners manual explains how to drain and replace the fluid in the tranny and then, under the "automatic tranny" section in the manual, it talks about draining the fluid in the transfer case and filling it with "ATF-3" fluid. "ATF-3", by name, is Automatic transmission fluid, does this mean that since mine is a manual, that i dont need to worry about this step and forget about the transfer case altogether?

Im confused and could use some clarification

Sorry if this is a ridiculous question, but you were warned!!

No you dont need to worry about changing your transfer case fluid when you change your tranny fluid. I would recommend doing it though.

No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van

x2. You didn't say how many miles you had on it (or if you spend any time in 4x4) but your owner's manual will let you know if you are due on the tcase also.

The tcase fluid gets changed on it's own schedule regardless of whether you have an auto or a manual tranny.
